Creating specialties

Educor, the largest provider of private education in Africa and holding company of Intec School of Insurance, has restructured its internal businesses to meet the changing training needs of corporates in South Africa.

The restructure is in response to the stringent guidelines set by government to upgrade national skills through education and training authorities and follows the successful FAIS training through Intec School of Insurance in conjunction with INSETA in the financial services sector.
The International Colleges Group (ICG) is Educor’s division for distance learning, which in turn it runs the ICG Learning Solutions. As of 1st October 2006 Learning Solutions will become directly controlled by Educor.
Says Nikki Wouterse, CEO of ICG Learning Solutions, “With the growing demand for corporate training and our success in this market, Educor has recognised the potential for our division  to replicate the successful business model in other sectors.”
ICG Learning Solutions will receive a substantial capital injection from Educor to ensure it delivers world-class service to corporates, and grow to become the leading corporate training division in South Africa.
Comments MD of Educor, Hennie Louw, “Continuous quality training is an imperative for businesses in the 21st century and ICG Learning Solutions has proved it is ideally positioned to serve its anchor clients such as Metropolitan and Old Mutual.”
Educor will now have five main divisions through which to offer the widest range of courses in Africa: ICG Learning Solutions for corporate training; ICG for individual distance learning; Damelin Education Group, for face-to-face learning; GIMT for executive training; and, Educor Africa, which focuses on expansion into the rest of Africa.
Observes Wouterse, “Our infrastructure and national presence is a substantial advantage, thanks to our backing from Educor and Naspers. The benefits of 100 years of distance learning expertise, coupled with an innovative and flexible approach ensures that we can facilitate national roll-outs,” points out.
